Asbolus et al Full Moon III

March 4, 2018

Well, here are a couple of clues to better interpret the puzzle we spoke of in the previous post…

The upcoming (16 March) Stations of Aletheia/Truth and Mnemosyne/Memory make a Trioctile Bridge across the Full Moon and the Asbolus T-Square (Challenge to our Intuition) in the Full Moon chart.  A Trioctile Bridge means that a third planet is Trioctile from one end of an Opposition, and Octile from the other end.  Since Octiles are about Adjustments to bring ourself Back Into Balance, and the Trioctile injects Love with Wisdom into that Adjustment, this is a boon.

However, if we Focus on What’s Out of Balance, which is almost inevitable at first, we could find ourselves in the middle of a Bummer or one sort or another.  We need to Focus instead on Bringing It Back Into Balance.  Bringing What Back Into Balance?  We may not know that.  So we use PIAVAs.  “I Wonder What I’m Being Asked to Rebalance.”  “Ganeshi, please Remove all Obstacles to my Returning to Balance on all Dimensions.”  And the like.

Many astrologers see the Trioctile as a mini-Square (“Sesquisquare” they call it), and focus on the Challenge part of the equation.  But of course if they come from Fate rather than Choice, they don’t present the Challenge as a slalom to navigate, but rather as a Bummer to Accept.  Of course Nothing Changes until it is Accepted Exactly As It Is, so this isn’t the worst approach, but suggesting a path or two out of the Wilderness might also be useful at times.

The Presence of Angular Relationships between Sun-Neptune, Moon-Orcus, and Aletheia-Mnemosyne does tell us that the Full Moon and upcoming Stations are intimately connected.  Aletheia and Mnemosyne were moving only five arcminutes a day at the Full Moon.  I wouldn’t generally use the word “Stationary” till they were traveling one or two arcminutes a day (which starts about 10 March) or less.

And at the Full Moon, Aletheia and Mnemosyne were five Degrees apart.  That’s too far to consider them technically Conjunct for purposes of Describing the Current Moment, but it’s more than close enough to consider them Conjunct for purposes of interpreting the Future of Projects begun under their Watch.

Bottom Line, we may be Feeling Unease because we’re Beginning new Projects using the same Processes that have failed us in the Past.  The Challenges in the Full Moon include Confusion (Neptune), Fixed Habits (asteroid Karma), possibly Self-Sabotaging but Heuristic Intuitions (Asbolus), and Patterns that have become Stuck because of Vows we once made and since forgot (Orcus).

Hylonome (Letting Go of Codependent Relationships), the third impending Station (19 March), is on Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) in the Full Moon Chart, and the two form a Trine Bridge (Easy Path) across the Full-Moon Opposition.  So a Lower Bottom Line might be to look for any Attachments that might Limit the Success of our Projects.  So When In Doubt, Let Go might be a useful anthem for us here.

There’s another Challenge (T-Square) in the Full Moon chart that’s likely to be relevant – Ego Death, Mind or Communication, and Values (respectively Nemesis, Mercury, Venus) are all T-Square to the Opposition between Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) and Well-Defended Beliefs (Mars and asteroid Vesta).  So there is some serious Personal Growth going on for all of us.  If you run into a streak of “Is This Worth the Trouble?” or “Maybe I’d rather just lay down and Die” then you know you’re on the right track.

That’s the nature of an Ego Death/Nemesis event, and this is a very busy one.  We’re being Asked to Give Up our Way of Thinking/Mercury, our Values/Venus, the Beliefs we Defend most vigorously (Mars-Vesta), all for the sake of Pie in the Sky or our Unlimited Potential (Chaos). 

Notice that we’ve picked one Winner (Potential) and three Obstacles (Thinking, Values, Beliefs) to Winning.  For many people it will be the other way around – even if we’re willing to undergo an Ego Death, is this Unlimited Potential really going to Make Us Great Again?  Are we willing to Give Up so much for it?  Are we about to walk off a psychospiritual cliff?

Our only Response to this Possibility is to Ask, How Strong is our Belief in and Commitment to “Ascension,” as this all pretty clearly maps out an “Ascension Symptom.”  There’s a lot of undefined hype around “Ascension.”  We can rephrase the question as how Strong is our Belief in and Commitment to “Growth in Consciousness,” as this also clearly maps out a typical “Growth-in-Consciousness Process.”

To me, the real Question is “Do we have a Choice?” and its correlary, “Why did we undertake this Lifetime on this Planet at this time?”  In the current Planetary trajectory there are very few Winners, and what they’ll Win appears to have very questionable Value.  Golfing in their own Eco-Bubble to keep them Safe from a Toxic Planet, or from Mars’s lack of Livable Atmosphere (though I’ve never heard that Musk or Bezos are Golfers) and eating The Best GMO Neoquasifood?

(Thanks to the LA Times).

At any rate, it does seem like a Crossroad.  What exactly is our Intention for ourself and for the Planet?  Perhaps that’s the Issue.  Daniel Scranton’s recent Channelings seem to agree…

http://danielscranton.com/the-truth-of-who-you-are-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“When you are focusing very intensely on something that is happening in your world, or in your life, and you lose sight of the truth of who you really are, it is easy for you to get off track and to live your lives as much smaller beings than who you really are.

“It is easy to get lost in the details of life and to forget the biggest possible picture, and we are talking about a picture that is bigger than your shift in consciousness.  This picture is the picture of who you are and who you came to Earth to be.  It’s more important than what you do. It’s more important than what you believe in.

“The truth of who you are is something that you can live in every moment.  As you become the living, breathing embodiment of Source Energy and unconditional love, everything else seems miniscule by comparison.  You will not be knocked off of that track that you want to be on as you hold that truth close to your heart.”

Remembering the Truth

March 4, 2018

And Letting It Go.

Dunno about you, but there’s something bugging me, kind of a low-grade Guilt without an apparent object.  I haven’t finished digging around to see if it’s “just me” (interaction between the planets in the Sky now or “Transits,” and my natal planets) or if there’s an undercurrent in the Asbolus Full Moon chart that I haven’t filtered out yet, or if it’s “just” more Asbolus.  Or if it’s the start of our next Adventure, which is very possible.

The next Stations are on 16 March, two weeks hence, so we could be Feeling those already.  And it won’t hurt us to know what’s coming up anyway.  The two planets that Stand Still on 16 March 2018 are asteroids Aletheia or Truth, and Mnemosyne or Memory.  So we’re Remembering the Truth about something that we’ve Repressed or Reframed, quite possibly for a long time.  If our Reframe worked at the time but was actually a bit askew to the Truth, then the Emotions that are coming up for me would make sense.

Shortly thereafter, on 19 March, dwarf planet Hylonome Stands Still.  Hylonome is about Letting Go of Codependent Attachments.  Convenient that it’s so handily only a few days after these Codependent Attachments may have come out of hibernation and hiding. 

As I get time to dig further into what else might be happening I’ll let you know.

Asbolus et al Full Moon

February 28, 2018

Continuing our Asbolus theme that Intuition often leads us into Experiences that provide the raw material necessary for Wisdom to develop, it’s really an Asbolus-Karma-Orcus-Neptune Full Moon – that’s more or less an Intuition-Archetypes-Limiting Beliefs-Confusion Full Moon.  No wonder Material-oriented cultures like those derived from Western Europe focus on Intellect instead – the raw material necessary for Wisdom to develop often throws Monkey wrenches into the best-laid plans of Mice and Hupers.

Let’s take that “Intuition-Archetypes-Limiting Beliefs-Confusion” apart a little… 

  • We’ve been talking about dwarf planet Asbolus as Intuition (which as we’ve Learned is a drastic simplification) in the last several posts.
  • We’re referring to asteroid Karma as symbolizing Karma or “Archetypes,” the old Habit Patterns that muscle our Presence out of the way and put us on autopilot even when we’re about to drive off a cliff.

We’ve barely begun, and already we have quite a combination – {Experiences that provide the raw material necessary for Wisdom to develop} and {old Habit Patterns that muscle our Presence out of the way and put us on autopilot even if we’re about to drive off a cliff}.  Sounds like “someone” is Asking “Got Consciousness?” but without the cookies.  Then we add…

  • Dwarf planet Orcus as Limiting Beliefs.  It’s a little more complex; Orcus stands for Oaths, Promises, Vows, and Curses; we usually hang Limiting Beliefs around asteroid Vesta’s neck, and the two planets can have similar results.  Oaths, Promises, Vows, and Curses, until we Revert! or Disavow them, become Limiting Beliefs as soon as they drop from the “front” of our Consciousness.
  • Neptune represents Confusion about Material issues, but Clarity when we switch to the Spiritual Perspective.  It symbolizes our Relationship with anything or everything Larger than Ourself – Goddess, Culture, Planet, Cosmos, you name it.

The Full-Moon Sun in Pisces Conjoins Neptune, the Virgo Moon Opposing it Conjoins Orcus, and Challenging (Squaring) this is the “simpler” (astrologically if not psychospiritually) Opposition between Asbolus in Gemini and Karma in Sagittarius.  These four Signs are the Mutable Signs, “Mutable” as in “Mutation” – they imply that We Are Changing and that We Can Choose to Change what we don’t like if we’re Willing and Able to Let Go of it.

Being Willing and Able to Let Go of course is exactly the issue with Karmic Velcro.  Just remember that Karma died a while back, and that it’s not as it appears – that Karma sticks to Us – it’s actually that We stick to our Karma.  It’s actually our Choice, although one of the characteristics of Karma is that we’re Hypnotized into Believing that we don’t have Choice.  Snap your fingers if you have to, but Breaking the Trance is Bottom Line. 

We’re left with a moment (or longer) of Void, but that’s what Choice feels like; we’re just not used to it so we don’t Appreciate the extra Breath of Freedom.  Now we’ve been told that Conservative Hupers need an Authority to follow or they’re Lost, and there’s no greater or more Unconscious Authority than Karma.  Until it doesn’t work any more.  If our Karma is about riding Horses or sweeping up Horseshit, and we live in the city, we may have a hard time finding Right Livelihood.

Sooner or later Big Void befalls us all, and it becomes Clear that it’s time to Abandon our Karma.   Conservative Hupers will have no Choice but to Get Conscious once their Authorities no longer function in the World As It Is.  When your Beach House floods at every high tide, you begin to Wonder if the Conservative gospel on Climate Change Denial will still create the same Safety of Belonging at the country club.  The weather’s no longer fit for golf, but the drinks in the clubhouse are still good.

So it turns out that Neptune, while normally Befuddling us with Confusion, in this chart is our Savior.  When we switch to Seeing the World with our Spiritual Eyes, it all makes perfect sense, and we know exactly what to do with Voids.  PIAVA, for instance.  Or Anything New and Different – we’re Collecting Experience after all.  We don’t gain much Experience from Repetition, though it gives us Power as long as it still does what we Want it to.

A chart with a Grand Cross (the red square below), like this Full Moon, is great for Motivation and Energy.  If it’s going to be a likeable chart, though (to the extent that the Question “Got Consciousness?” is likeable), it needs Blessings as well.  Which this one does, thankfully (the blue lines below).  We’ll be leaning heavily on these…

The simplest Blessing is a Trine Bridge (Easy Path) across the Full Moon gap.  The Bridge is made from Ease at Letting Go of Impediments to our Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome and Lilith, respectively, in the lower right).  Which tells us that if we hit a Void, all we need to do is Ask ourself, “What would [insert your name] do here if he/she wasn’t pulled hither and thither by needing to Please others?”

The more astrologically complex Blessing is the Golden (blue) Rectangle.  We use blue to indicate Grace, but astrology refers to this sort of Rectangle as “Golden” because the ratio of its long sides to its short sides is the “Golden Ratio” of Sacred Geometry.  That means that the Blessings are Reinforced by Nature Herself, as the Golden Ratio is Her favorite way to structure Matter.

The Diagonals (the levers of Power) of the Golden Rectangle are the Nodal Axis (Karma and Mission) and the the Asbolus-Karma Opposition (Experiences that provide the raw material necessary for Wisdom to develop and old Habit Patterns that muscle our Presence out of the way and put us on autopilot even when we’re about to drive off a cliff).  Again, very Heavy, but it’s Grace, so we can Relax.  Oppositions represent Dualities, which those of us who were Programmed by Intellectualized Cultures are used to interpreting as Contradistinctions.

The Unconscious, though, is not Dual, it’s Unitary, Multidimensional, and Multifarious.  That means that in the Unconscious there are no Contradictions, though there may be what appears to the Intellect as Paradox.  So from the Perspective of the Unconscious, we can see the ends of an Opposition not as two competitors, but as two complimentary tools. 

For instance, one of the characteristics of the South Node is that it contains, (poorly) hidden beneath our Karma, our Held Emotions.  These are the Emotions which we’d “rather Die” than tolerate.  Well, (well) hidden in turn behind our Held Emotions, are exactly the Karmic (good Karma in this case) Skills we need to Accomplish our Lifetime Mission.  Turns out that they’re joined at the hip, and Mobius didn’t make any one-sided Coins.

Similarly, if Asbolus wants to rub our face in the places where we need but lack Wisdom, asteroid Karma can help bring Consciousness into those dark places, as well as onto the path that leads into the Light.  And as Karma repeats our Archetypes ad infinitum in hopes that we’ll finally Notice the Pattern and Choose an Alternative or several, it Creates the Experience that Asbolus Needs. 

Remember that the Microtubules (likely seat of Consciousness itself) in our Mitochondria have direct Access to All of the Information in the Universe.  Except that two things can block that Access – Toxic Chemicals and Held Emotions.  In other words, Letting Go of Karma is not an endless process, and these Configurations should be fabulous for making it Easier to Clear our Held Emotions.  Once we do that, the Toxic Chemicals won’t stand a chance…

Combining red (Squares) and blue (Trines), in the special chromatography that we use for astrology, makes green (Quincunxes), since with a total of twelve Signs, adding three Signs (Square) to four (Trine) leaves five (Quincunx), making twelve.  An apparent oddity of spherical mathematography.  What’s most Important about the green lines is the green wedges or Fingers of the Goddess, which tell us where to Pay Attention!

In this case that’s Mission or North Node, and Letting Go of Codependence or Hylonome-Lilith.  The first-named echos Sun-Neptune, as both Ask us to Pay Attention to the Spiritual Perspective rather than the Material. 

Hylonome mirrors the South Node, as the Mythical Hylonome Chose Death over Letting Go of her Attachment to her Lover.  If we’re Accepting our Fate and Surrendering to our Karmic Trance, that’s the Choice we make because “We’d rather Die” than face our Held Emotions.

Since we on the other hand immer Strebend for Consciousness, we Grok that it’s not our Body that would rather Die, it’s our Ego that would have to Molt – another Scary Void.  So again, by Choosing Self-Sovereignty –

“What would [insert your name] do here if they actually had their Druthers and weren’t pulled thither and yon by the Compulsion to Please Others and to Keep doing the same things even though they’ve been proven not to work?”

– we simply walk away from our Dilemmas and begin to Create a New World by rearranging the shards of the Olde one and adding some new touches, like Joy and Effortlessness.

 

 

Asbolus 3

February 26, 2018

Brenda Hoffman’s Channeling for today nails the Yintegrity part of the Asbolus Discover chart that we described in the previous post – here are excerpts…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2018/02/26/your-crowd-pleasing-days-are-over/

We are amazed at your tenacity and yes, strength.  For throughout your 3D eons of earth lives, you forced yourself to follow society rules instead of daring to be you.  So it is that you did physical, emotional, and spiritual harm to your being to be part of the group.

“Now that you are of 5D, you are beginning to proclaim your individuality.  Something not necessarily easy.  Not because it is wrong, but because it is so foreign to the 3D society with which you are familiar.

“Even though you continue to remain within that society via your daily activities, your voice is changing from that of passive acquiesce to an almost strident rightness to be.  Something that frightens you as much as others…

Where you once said, “yes” even though you did not want to deep within your being, you are now loudly proclaiming, “NO.”  Surprising both you and those comfortable with the old you.

“You are claiming your power, one ‘no’ at a time.  Of course, doing so is disturbing to both you and the entities experiencing it for all of you are trained to be nice.

“You have even been taught ways to proclaim your rightness with hidden means.  Such as talking about someone when they are not there.  Or responding to what you label a “catty” answer.  Or acquiescing to a request only to neglect to follow through.  Or ignoring your needs, so someone else is comfortable.  But nowhere in that litany of acceptable behaviors is your ability to quietly and calmly state your needs without some sort of 3D repercussion.

“For 3D is group-think and 5D and beyond is the uniqueness of being…

“This 5D experience is extremely different. Instead of following someone you fear or respect, you are following your path.  So it is that even those who seem to be of like-mind are not entirely of your mind – just as it should be.  For each of you is a powerful entity who does not require a leader nor anyone to proclaim your rightness…

“Instead, it is you and only you.  There are so many functions of this New Earth to complete that while you might meet fellow travelers here and there at certain junctions, it is your path, not the path of anyone else.”

Asbolus 2

February 25, 2018

As we might Imagine or Intuit (speaking of Asbolus), Mind/Mercury Opposed Intuition/Asbolus when Asbolus was Discovered.  But it’s not as simple as the Mind would like to make it out to be – the Opposition is the central axis of a Yin Gate – a Mystery School here to Teach us about Paradox.  It’s a complex-looking chart, but it’s actually pretty well-Organized…

A Yin Gate is formed when three Oppositions are one Sign apart, here Intuition-Logic (Asbolus-Mercury) flanked by Values-Manifestation (Venus-Makemake), and our Mission in the Lifetime versus the Karma that Resists it (the Nodal Axis).  That’s the red triple-X inside the blue rectangle in the center of the chart, and the accompanying green dos equis.

Paradox just means that Either/Or doesn’t work.  It never actually does, it usually just makes us feel smug, but in Paradox we can’t even get away with that.  We have to figure out how to finesse Both/And instead, which is never easy because the possibilities are endless.  Intuition Informs Mind?  Logic Trumps Intuition?  Hunches Beat Analysis, my Dear Elementary Watson?  We could put almost any transitive verb between them; how do we know what to Choose?

The answer, such as it is, lies in the Oppositions to the corners of the blue rectangle – Values-Manifestation and Mission-Karma.  So, for instance, our Karma might determine our Values (rather than our Heart), which would interfere with Manifesting our Mission.  So Asbolus is likely Ask us to Examine our Values for Self-Sabotage. 

For instance, will today’s Propagandists and Liars perpetuate their apparent Advantage over Truthspeakers and Yintegrists, or will they eventually be held Responsible for their Lies?  Will the folks who Sell their Soul for Greed or Popularity eventually Fall from Privilege?  Those are big issues that aren’t really relevant to us from the Personal Perspective, but they point us to possible chapters in our Fearless and Searching Inventory – When and Why do we fall out of Yintegrity?  Do we ever Sell our Souls for Security or Approval?

It’s even trickier; each of the diagonal Oppositions in the blue rectangle are the platform for a Challenge to Mastery (T-Square, the red triangles).  The Values-Manifestation Opposition is Challenged by Boundaries and Self-Sovereignty (Pallas-Lilith, on the left edge of the chart).  That makes it pretty Clear – when do I Betray my Self-Sovereignty in the name of either Security or Desire (too much debt for instance), or in the name of misplaced Morality (Choosing “Nice” instead of “No” for instance)? 

This is about Paradox, though, so what’s “Clear” is probably more of a clue than a conclusion.

The Mission-Karma Opposition is Challenged by Sustainability (asteroid Ceres, the cuphook symbol in the lower left), seemingly implying that we’ll be better off if we aim for the Long Haul.  As economists say though, in the Long Run we’re all Dead.  Which may not matter if we’ve been Programmed to shoot for Pie in the Sky.  That would seriously interact with our Values-Manifestation Question.  Is “next time’s” Karma more important than “this time’s” Comfort?  What about Self-Love?  What if there isn’t a “next time”?

Lotsa Fun, these Paradoxes, eh?  If the Mind is pleased we’re probably Wrong.  On the other hand, Intuition often leads us into Trouble, because rather than the Answer we seek, it often presents us with the course material we need if we want to gain the Multidimensional Experience from which we will earn Wisdom, rather than Dualistic Knowledge or Certainty.  And we want to be somewhere in between anyway.  Can we Sustain Curiosity?  That’s what the green equis (crossed Quincunxes) suggest anyway.

And we haven’t covered any of the Stellia yet, and only one of the Conjunctions we spoke of in the prior post.  Busy busy, this Asbolus.

AsBolus 1

February 24, 2018

Not that many folks checking the blog home page yesterday, so maybe the Station of dwarf planet Asbolus felt more like it had a double-ess here than it did elsewhere.  It is pretty Strong in my natal chart.  It’s still Lit Up in the upcoming Full Moon chart, however, so I’ll share my further investigations into why it felt a lot more serious than just being about our Intuition.  The Mythology about it’s namesake is pretty skimpy, other than to say that she was a Fortune-Teller.

The more often we Experience an Energy, the more familiar it is to us.  When two planets Conjoin, their Energies Merge, yielding an Energy that we aren’t prepared for.  When three or more planets converge (a “Stellium”), it gets downright Strange, because it gets less likely that we’ve ever Experienced the Energy.  Let’s look at a couple of the Stellia in the 5 April 1995 Asbolus Discovery chart.

For instance, Abuse, Forbidden Genius, Compulsion, and Survival (respectively Nessus, Ixion, Pluto, and Quaoar) make up one Stellium in the Discovery Chart.  That sounds like it could be a pretty toxic combination.  The latter three planets all have about the same orbital period as Pluto (250 or so years), and Nessus about half that.  A quick back-of-the-envelope calculation of how often all four of these folks might hang out in the same time zone gives us once in over 2,160 million years. 

That means, if we believe the cosmologists’ current guesses about the age of our Solar System, that 1995 would have been only the second time ever that these four converged.  Since our Solar System may not have been Created in one instant on a Saturday afternoon, the planets may not have been in the same orbits 2,000 million years before 1995, and even if they were, who knows what sort of Form our Consciousness may have occupied then.

So for all intents and purposes, given current conjectures about our cosmology, 1995 was really the first time we’ve Experienced this Energy everEver.  Did we Discover in 1995 that it may have been Abuse that caused our Genius to get Compulsive about going Underground to assure our Survival?  Or perhaps we Discovered that all these years we mistakenly Believed that other People thought that our Genius was Compulsively Abusive, so we thought it best for our Survival to Suppress it. 

This Energy in the Asbolus Discovery chart tells us that this is part of the nature of the impact of Asbolus upon the Huper Psyche – that the cross-contamination of Abuse, Forbidden Genius (Forbidding Genius is itself Abuse), Compulsion, and Survival is becoming Conscious on the Planet. 

We’re seeing that in the Abuse and Shaming that the assault-rifle-toting “adults” have been attempting to heap upon the Traumatized Third Wave kids (who were born a few years after Asbolus was Discovered) in Florida , and whose Bullying is being called out by the Forces That Be, namely the Corporations that actually run the US.  The government is too corrupt to respond to the People, but many of the Corporations know better than to blow off their customers in public too many times, and the Media is beginning to follow, in the effort to keep the few advertisers that haven’t been captured by Facebook and Google.

Of course there may be other Solar Systems where we’ve hung out that have faster planets which symbolize Abuse, Compulsion, Survival, and Dangerous Genius, if those concepts exist beyond our own home planetarium.  In those Realms we’d have more Experience with this mix of Energies.  Maybe some of those 1995 babies will recall some of their Lifetimes in those Galaxies.  Or maybe the Lizards we already know and “Love” are from there.  It’s probably a coincidence, but Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts was founded in 1995.

Or maybe we should look at Nessus in this context not as the Abuse suffered by the Victims, but as the Privilege enjoyed by the Perps.  Many of them appear to be quite Compulsive about it, and the events of the last week show them to be shaky about their Survival, and more transparent about their perverted Genius.  The NRA has been Acting Out in a very Ixionic manner.  Or Idiotic, either one.  Probably time to do a review of Ixion’s Discovery chart as well.

At any rate, this Stellium helps to explain how Asbolus has seemed to influence our Planet for the last week or two.  Briefly, other Stellia in the Asbolus Discovery chart…

  • Chaos-Eris-Sun, Revelation of our Unlimitedness
  • Lilith-Pallas-Mnemosyne, Remembering the Boundaries necessary for our Self-Sovereignty
  • Veritas-Sappho-Eurydike, Trusting the Truth of our Self-Love

And there are some pretty hot Conjunctions as well…

  • Saturn-Nemesis, The Most Important Thing is our Ego Deaths
  • Karma-Moira, The Fate of our Ancient Habits is that we’ll replace them with Choice
  • Moon-Aletheia, Our Authenticity Revealed
  • Varuna-Vesta, The Life Force must become our most Revered Belief
  • Mars-Orcus, Tearing up our Obsolete Contracts
  • Chiron-Hopi, Embracing the Pain in All Things
  • Haumea-Hylonome, Rebirth of Recovery from Codependence
  • Uranus-Neptune, Merging of the Individual and Group Souls

Many of these concepts are consistent with the demise of the Patriarchy and the rise of the Yang Feminine, where Individual and Group are equally Respected.  Neptune Initiated Uranus in 1993 for instance, at 20 Capricorn, “A hidden choir sings during a religious service” – Obsolete Rituals co-opted by secret undercurrents.

Each of the Stellia and Conjunctions would likely have indicated recent or incipient Initiations of a lot of new Cycles, indicating major shifts in the Zeitgeist in preparation for a new Century focused on replacing Nationalism and Competition (Flag) with broad Vision (Eagle) and Enlightenment (Chanticleer Heralding the Dawn) – the Pluto-Chiron Initiation at the Cusp of the new Century.

 

Intuition Olympics 3

February 21, 2018

There’s another interesting Asbolus-Station chart, looking in on the Fifth-Harmonic Angles – a Grand Quintile…

And 85% of a Grand Decile.  The Fifth Harmonic is about what we’re Learning.  It may Amplify or Extend what the rest of the chart shows, or it may indicate something entirely different.  A Grand Quintile is five planets equally spaced around the Zodiac – a graduate degree in one map. 

A Grand Decile is ten planets equally spaced around the Loop.  The Tenth Harmonic is about Fortune.  Not always Good Fortune, but you can Choose that if you’re so inclined and Conscious.

The Grand Quintile of Learning includes…

  • Manifestation – dwarf planet Makemake
  • Truth – asteroid Aletheia
  • Boundaries – asteroid Pallas
  • The Edges of Consciousness – asteroid Juno
  • Active Defense of, or Attack on, our Beliefs – Mars and asteroid Vesta

How many Stories can we make using those terms (or their Opposites) plus some riff on the concept of Learning?  For instance…

  • When we Notice that our Beliefs have been Challenged and we find ourself Defending them, we know that we’re on one of the Boundaries that we use to Protect ourself from Growth in Consciousness.  By Learning to step across that Boundary we can begin to Manifest the Truth about Who We Are and What We Want.

Okay, your turn.  Make several.  Find at least one that’s a Bummer, such as…

  • Our own Beliefs will Attack us when we try to cross the Hard Boundary between the Ego and the Unconscious.  I’m Scared to be Truthful with myself and Confront the Ogre that guards the gate.  In the Fairy Tales there’s usually a Treasure on the other side, hoarded by the Ogre.  It’s probably what I’ve always Wanted but never been able to Manifest.  Sad.

Now turn it around so it’s a Blessing.  The World just Is, whether you Define it as Bummer or Blessing is your Choice.  Choose Blessing.  Remember that Power is never Given, it’s Taken.  Power is the opposite of Victim.

The three extant points on what would be the second Grand Quintile that’s Decile to the first are…

  • The Life Force – dwarf planet Varuna
  • The Authenticity we need to Manifest our Unlimited Potential – the Moon and dwarf planet Chaos
  • The Ability to Interrupt an Archetype – asteroid Lachesis

And Trance Reformation – Pluto, is close to making a fourth.  Pluto actually makes the necessary Biquintile Angle to the Moon.  The Moon symbolizes Authenticity, so we gladly let Pluto be the handle on the Lunar umbrella, and let it Restructure the Programming that causes us to constantly betray our Real Self. 

The missing sixth point in the second Grand Quintile would be around 11 Degrees of Scorpio, “A drowning person is being rescued.”  That fits very well – this Vacancy isn’t in the planetary Configuration, so in order to Complete the Grand Decile (Great Fortune) we need to rescue ourself from drowning in the Undifferentiated Sea of the Unconscious. 

We do that by Noticing the Archetypes that Sabotage us, and Noticing that we have the Power to Choose a Different Action than what our Programming would have Chosen for us.  It’s never too late to start.

Pluto, which also represents Compulsion, is also almost exactly Biquintile to the Intuition Olympics – the Asbolus Station that’s the reason we’re looking at this chart in the first place.  So our Power here lies in Accepting our Intuitions when they tell us that we’re Betraying our Real Self.  If we feel like we’re sleep-walking or stoned or Guilty here, we’re on the right track; we need to be operating from the Artistic and Musical “right brain,” not the Logical and Obedient “left brain.”

Intuition Olympics 2

February 19, 2018

The second Diamond Star Challenges us to redeploy our Boundaries (Pallas) so they Protect us from Abuse, while they’re Open to facilitating What We Want to Manifest, and in particular Open to Fulfilling our Deepest Desires…

The base of the T-Square is the Nodal Axis.  When the Nodal Axis works properly, the South Node points out our Held Emotions, we Embrace them, and another important Skill that we Mastered in a Past Life (but which was obscured by the Held Emotions) is made available to us so we can apply it toward our North-Node Mission.  “Held” Emotions are those which we Consciously or Unconsciously Avoid “at all costs” because they Trigger an Ego Death that feels like a “Real” Death because that’s probably just what it was in the Past Life (if not several).

Since Physical Death is the only thing that’s Certain on this Planet, it’s beyond me why everyone doesn’t study it from K-12 on, so they’re ready to Actively carry what they’ve Learned in the current Lifetime on to the next one.  Evidently it’s because their churches banned the discussion of Reincarnation and convinced them that they have no Soul to carry on their Essence.  Even where Reincarnation is discussed, it’s in terms of retaliation rather than inertia.

It’s not True that “you can’t take it with you” – what you take with you is What You’ve Learned.  You may not take your Spiritually Worthless (except Heuristically) Shekels with you to the next Life, but if you’ve Learned how to Manifest Abundance, that’s what you’ll take with you.  Give someone a Fish and they’ll eat; Teach them to Fish and they’ll spend all day in a boat drinking Beer, as the saying goes.

Our Belief-Inspired Actions (Mars-Vesta), which were an Inhibition to Mastering our first Diamond Star, are to this one a Boon, being as they are part of the “Bowl of Grace” for this Diamond Star.  The implication is that in order to modify our Boundaries so they Serve us better, we need to Act to Align our Beliefs with our Desires.  Or rather, since it’s Trine to the North Node, that we’ll be Inspired to do so, without having to think about it.  Same for summarily Jettisoning the Timelines/Patterns/Habits/Karma (Atropos-Eurydike) and even Held Emotions (Trine to South Node) because we Trust that there is Light beyond Letting Go.

If we put these two Diamond Stars together, we see how complex the chart becomes…

But it also illustrates some additional features, most of which are quite Beneficial.  For instance the Air Grand Trine (big blue triangle, implying Dumb-Luck Grace), signifying that our Intuition will be Complementing our mind here rather than Arguing with it like it usually does. 

And notice that the chart fills five of the six points necessary to turn the Grand Trine into a Grand Sextile, which is even better since it means that our Actions are likely to have their Intended Effect.  The missing sixth point is occupied by the Star Alpheratz, signifying joie de vivre.

In addition to the special emphasis a Station always grants (here to Moon-Asbolus), there are five Fingers of God, putting special emphasis on…

  • Trusting that Ending Archetypes will Serve us (Atropos-Eurydike),
  • Our Mission (North Node),
  • Our Boundary Revisions (Pallas),
  • Our Integration of Thought, Spirit, Values, and Evolved Identity (Mercury-Neptune-Venus-Nemesis), and
  • Another complex that we haven’t discussed yet…

which is the Merging (Conjunction) of Self-Sovereignty (Lilith), Self-Confidence (Chariklo), and Beginning a New Timeline (Klotho).  In the Unconscious World, New Timelines are established by Fate or our Karma, but since we Strive to become Conscious, it is We who Choose New Timelines and when to Begin them.  So we can think of Klotho as Choice.

So unless we work hard at Resisting it (which of course some of us will, if we also Resist the Integration, Boundary Revisions, and Belief Revisions that the rest of the chart implies), we’re likely to be Choosing to have New Self-Confidence in our Self-Sovereignty.  Self-Sovereignty being an important section of the admission exam for the 5D theme park of Harmony, Mutual Understanding, Sympathy, Trust, and Universal Collaboration, this is good.

Intuition Olympics 1

February 19, 2018

The 23 February (8pm PST) Station of dwarf planet Asbolus, which symbolizes Intuition, is a busy one even without considering its chronological coincidence with our PTSD Gauntlet (see two previous posts).  It takes four charts to sketch out just the strongest outlines of the Station. 

A Station is when the impact of a planet is Strongest.  In general, we’ll feel the influence of a Station for about a week prior to the actual event, with the Energy increasing as the event approaches.  Then it should drop off quite suddenly, though there are exceptions, mostly dealing with Decisions.

Suppose for instance there’s a particular Intuition that’s been nagging at you, but you haven’t been able to follow up on it because it conflicts too much with Beliefs that you haven’t been able to Let Go of.  Maybe you haven’t figured out how to Communicate it and still see yourself as “Nice,” and it’s really bugging you.  So, with…

“Your mother’s ghost stands at your shoulder
Eyes like ice, a little bit colder
Saying to you, ‘you cannot do that, it breaks
All the rules you learned in school’ “

you rededicate yourself to your Vows to Obey Authority.

That’ll set you Against the Natural Flow of Energy, and drive your Intuition further into the Unconscious.  Suppose your Intuition was that you need to tell someone to stop Disrespecting you.  Well, the more we stash that in the dungeon, the more Abuse we’ll attract to ourself, because our External World is a Mirror for our Internal World.  That’ll carry the Energy of the Station well past the time of the event.

The Asbolus Station itself, busy as it is, has some very beneficial features.  Diamond Stars occur when a Finger of God (Pay Attention!) complements a T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) and creates a “bowl of Grace” under the T-Square, greatly Easing the Challenge.  Diamond Stars aren’t that common, yet we’ve seen a couple of them recently.  And there are two of them in the Asbolus Station chart!

The first one is a Challenge to Integrate our Values, our Emotions, our Thoughts, and our Relationship to the Universe, into one coherent package, enduring whatever Ego Deaths are required along the way, to become Aware of and Let Go of any Conflicts between these important components of our Identity (T-Square to Mercury-Neptune-Venus-Nemesis)…

Add to that the process of also Integrating our Gender Balance, our Beliefs, our Skill at Honoring and Manifesting What We Want, and our Intuition (Moon-Asbolus Opposite Mars-Vesta in the base of the T-Square).  The “Bowl of Grace,” or Gifts to make this Rebalancing Easier, are Our Mission (North Node), and Trust that we can Let Go of Self-Sabotaging Patterns in our Life without suffering eternal damnation (Atropos-Eurydike).

The base of the T-Square is an Indictment of Western Culture’s Patriarchal Habit of Preferring Logic to Intuition.  Logic has no basis in Fact, because it’s totally dependent on the Assumptions that underlie its house of cards.  Because the Assumptions are usually unspoken, and the Logic is often expressed in Moralistic terms, it’s a prime tool for Manipulating and Controlling us. 

The Mars-Vesta end of the Opposition represents our Beliefs that Action is Required to Change the World.  The Moon-Asbolus end is quite the Opposite.  A case could be made that “what we Resist, Persists.”  The Moon symbolizes the Passion that glues Energy into specific Forms of Matter.  Matter is a Willing Slave to our Conscious Desires, but when the Unconscious is a mess of Conflicting Unfulfilled Needs and Wants that are Prohibited by our Beliefs, Matter is understandably a muddled mess.

The Asbolus Station Conjoining the Moon Opens our Intuition to the places where we tend to Act to Sabotage ourself because of our Limiting Beliefs (Mars-Vesta).  The Diamond Star as a whole is a huge Celebration of Liberation.

Trusting Fear or Fearing Trust

January 31, 2018

It’s kind of your choice – though it’s a lot more complicated than that.  Here’s the Timeline…

  • These two events come first in time, but they’re very different and less immediate than the others, but once you read through you’ll see how closely it’s all related!…
    • 2 February (7am PST) Hylonome Initiates Lilith – Letting Go of Codependence, or the places where we Abandon ourself because of Fear.  This Cycle lasts about ten years, and it Begins at 10 Capricorn, “An Albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor,” or the sort of Collaborative Interdependence with Nature that we find in 5D.
    • 3 February (noon PST) asteroid Karma Initiates Mars – Look out for that Safe falling from the third floor!  This Cycle lasts about three years eight months, and it begins at 4 Sagittarius, “A little child learning to walk with the encouragement of their parents.”  Okay, so we can Expect to be Vulnerable for the next several years, but we can also Expect to be Guided.  The combination of PIAVAing Guidance and Surrendering Resistance should work to our advantage.  Don’t neglect your Poor-Sweethearts, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/.

 

  • 4 February (1am PST) – Eurydike Stands Still.  Eurydike is about Trust, which is likely to be a front-row issue between now and 4 February, though there will be spillover from the next (7 February, Sedna) entry.  And a ton or overlap with the 13 February Atropos Station – they both happen in the same place!  Bottom Line: When Doubt arises,
    • Stop what you’re doing, no matter what it is (well, not in the middle of the freeway, but otherwise…),
    • Get yourself Safe, 
    • Deep Breath,
    • Focus your Attention in your Heart,
    • Ask, “Is this Truly Me, or Mine?
    • Trust the Answer you get.
    • If you’re still Confused, just Change the Subject.

 

  • 7 February (6am PST) – Sedna Stands Still.  Sedna is about Fear.  Our Purpose with Fear is Getting to Know it, inside and out.  When I was a kid, I thought that the Sun heated up the Day and the Moon cooled off the Night, till I found out that cold was just the Absence of Heat, as if Cold isn’t a “real” thing.  Fear is the Absence of Love, as if it isn’t a “real” thing.  But it needs Lifelong, Careful Study.  It’s Subtle.  Here are some suggestions…
    • PIAVA that you are hypersensitive to Fear – so much of our Life is a Reaction to Fear that lurks beneath the threshold of Consciousness.  We need to ferret those out, because they Sabotage us.
    • Ask the Universe, is this Fear Present Moment?  If so, quickly Pray for Safety, then Surrender to your Instincts.  You don’t need to Analyze; you can do that later, when you’re Safe.  You may want to practice with a rapid-fire Prayer, like “Goddess, Safety Please!” so you’re ready and don’t have to think about it.
    • Ask yourself, what is it that I’m Afraid of here?  Don’t dismiss it like your parents dismissed your Fear of the Monster in the closet; you’ll just drive it further underground where it’ll Sabotage you even more.  http://www.mossdreams.com/2015%20design/4_Books/nonfiction/three%20only%20things.htm.
    • Tap it Out.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4.
    • PIAVA What You Want instead.  https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.
    • Our Objective is to be very Sensitive to the many flavors of Fear that can befall us (from debilitating long-term Karma to stark Terror to a tiny Startle), and Respond appropriately to each (which usually means Lovingly, though that’s complicated – more later).

 

  • 13 February (8:30 am PST) – Atropos Stands Still.  Atropos is about Endings.  Hopefully all month we’ve been working on Ending our Disregard for and Misplacement of Trust, and our Disregard for and Misinterpretation of Fear.

 

  • 23 February (8pm PST) – Asbolus Stands Still.  Asbolus is about our Intuition.  Rules work great when tomorrow is like yesterday, which it ain’t going to be.  As Ursula was fond of saying, “Rules Change in the Reaches.”  Intuition will often lead us into “trouble,” because it wants to take us through the most Healing route.  Think Frodo.
